Junior Sail Camp will be held from June 20-24, 2017, at Berlin Yacht Club. Participation in Junior Sail Camp is open to the public. Complete details regarding sail camp can be found by clicking here. To register for sail camp, you will need to complete and mail in a sail camp application form and emergency medical application form.

The members of BYC focus on providing two things for our juniors. First, we offer opportunities to get time on the tiller for kids to sail and compete on whatever level they feel they can push themselves to. Second, we provide some time for kids to just be kids, which very often requires some time for us adults to be kids along with them.

Our annual sail camp puts these priorities into action in a fun filled 5 days of sailing, team building and good old fashioned summer-camp-style fun. This all volunteer camp is the center of the summer sailing season for our juniors and is one of the best opportunities for our membership to share our many years of sailing experience with the next generation of skippers, crew and friends. To extend the fun and learning we have a Jr. Weekend planned as a follow up to sail camp on July 29-30, 2017.
